Catch Me If You Can: The Brabus 1300R

Mercedes-Benz custom performance group Brabus has turned their attention to a 2-wheel ride for the creation of the 1300R.

The build is based on KTM’s current-model 1290 Super Duke R Evo driven by the same 3-liter V-twin tuned up to 180 horsepower. That’s good from 0-60 in 3.2 & a top speed of 170MPH.

Custom body panels and parts were added throughout, including a ceramic twin exhaust. Only 154 units will be made.
